HAVE A SMOKIN' DAY AND NIGHT!

NIGHT OUT: Line the water line with a brown kohl pencil and smudge with the MAC 266 brush

DAY SMOKE

Make sure that there is no demarcation between the two colours. Blend.
Notice that I did not line my lash bed.
Apply the first coat of mascara, separate and re apply for a high 'batting' average. :)
THE EYES: I used the MAC Eye Pencil as my base. Not sure if you can see it but I used the INGLOT brush (next to the pencil) to apply the brown shimmery shade (second row, third from the right) from the lash bed to the crease. Using the other side of the same brush, I outlined the crease with a medium brown shade (directly on top of the fist colour). Blend with the 217. Clean the INGLOT Brush and apply vanilla coloured shadow (1st row, last colour from the right) on the brow bone and tear ducts.

Using the same first eye shadow colour with the MAC 266 brush, line the lash line. Note that I did not line my lash bed.

By the way, this is the Coastal Scents 28 Neutral Palette. :)

THE BASE - Make Up Forever High Definition Primer, MAC Studio Fix Foundation and Powder, MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer, INGLOT Illuminator, Bobby Brown Cream Blush in Baby Pink, Dior Bronzer for contouring


Kay, this is for you. Hope it helps. :) The smokey eye is very versatile. It can go from am corporate to after office cocktails.

I also used 2 brushes only for the eye make up application so that re creating this look won't be too pricey as I know brushes can be quite expensive. The 3rd brush, which is the MAC 266 was used for the brows as well.
This eye make up application is perfect for monolided eyes or even hooded eyes.
For hooded eyes, make sure that the tear ducts have something shimmery and that you curl your lashes to open up your eyes.
